August: Osage County By Tracy Letts

Directed by Jackson Gay / SEP. 26 – OCT. 13

This funny, furious family reunion from hell begins when patriarch Beverly Weston disappears into the hot summer night. His sister-in-law and three daughters rush to the family estate with their families to care for their mother, the pill-popping and fiercely manipulative Violet. Trapped in the house together for the first time in years, dishes and insults fly as old wounds re-open in this brilliantly written, Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning dark comedy about family and the inheritance of trauma. Contains adult language and situations.
